I have purchased the calculator “Journals Calculator v1”, see the order 1652. I like to clarify few details

1) Input Data: What is a meaning of the below parameter?
ρ [kg/mm³], 8.21E-07

Based on the unit and value it seems that this is a density. According to the Technical Help this should be an angle. There is no such angle on the image.
2) Output Data: What are three below pressure values? Specifically, what is the second value?
p [kgf/mm²], 0.876643
p' [kgf/mm²], 4,231.77
p̌ [kgf/mm²], 98,647.97

Help doesn’t explain above parameters.
3) On the image in Help, the below angle is marked from the Qb dimension line. Is this correct? Should it be marked from the min oil film thickness?
γ [°], 6.004232

4) Based on first calculations and as it is marked in the image, it seems that Wx and Wy components values are being switched. Please confirm.

This customer was correct. There is an error in the Context and the Technical help pages.
The text for the mass density of the oil was missed out in the code, upsetting the Symbol>Text sequencing. The calculations, however, are not affected.
This has now been corrected in the calculator and any previous customer that wishes to be sent a revised copy of the calculator, please contact us and we will send you a copy of the corrected version free of charge.
